the stargazer’s shawl
1 1/4 yards flannel fabric
2 1/4 yards bobble trim
Prewash your fabric.
Open out the fabric, then fold it on the diagonal. It should measure about 58 inches on the long edge.
Cut along the straight edge.
Pin and machine baste bobble trim along right side of two shorter edges of shawl, beginning and ending at folded edges and extending the ends of the trim slightly beyond the edge. Be sure to baste the trim onto only one side of shawl, not through both layers.
Now, turn the shawl so right sides are facing, with the bobble trim sandwiched between (except for the ends, which should be poking out so they will finish to the inside). Stitch a 1/2-inch seam along the raw edges, leaving a 4-6-inch opening for turning.
Clip corners, turn and press. Topstitch all three sides, sewing closed the opening in the process.
You’re done! Tie it in front, wrap it around and tie it in back, or just drape it over your shoulders… You’re all set for a brisk night of stargazing!
